Sold and Realized am a fool

Sam is a project manager who feels everything can be outsourced..
He builds a product with outsourced team..
One day one of vendor calls up Sam

Raj ám in deep shit.. will have to close my unit’

Sam ‘relax.. what is your overhead’

Raj ‘100000 per month’

Sam ‘fine.. I will make payment in time’

Raj ‘other customer will not.. have to exit’

Sam ‘ok .. I am ready to take over your company for 300000’

Raj ‘ok..am willing’

6 months later

Sam ‘Raj.. that venture is now having revenue of 1000000’

Raj is sad

Sam ‘you were desperate.. you never seeked solution.. never bargained and..’

Raj ‘it is past.. have again started a venture..’

Sam ‘what is your product’

Raj ‘compliment to your product’

Sam ‘who invested in it..’

Raj ‘Angel Investor George… 1000000’

Sam ‘wow… I can give you business.. but need to be one of co founder.. 20% equity for 500000 business’

Raj pauses

Raj ‘done.. we will work together’

After 6 months

Raj ‘want to sell company.. got 5M$ deal’

Sam ‘sure.. you can do it’

After 3 months

Raj ‘I got 5M$.. am now free bird.. will start an accelerator’

Sam smiles..

Sam ‘that company which acquired is also mine… I have got a business worth 10M$ for it’

Raj is sad

Sam ‘Raj.. why are you in hurry to sell everything so soon.. don’t you ever wish to build foundation.. a corporate with 100000 staff’

Raj realizes his mistake..

Raj ‘Sir.. can you cofound something with me’

Sam ‘you be a good employee first.. be CEO of both ventures which you sold to me.. and only when you build patience.. become an entrepreneur’
